Unique Partnership with Local Food Shelf Benefits Residents of Uptown Maple Commons in North Branch

Family Pathways in North Branch has gone mobile to help meet the needs of residents who have difficulty getting to the food shelf. 

The Family Pathways food shelf is just across the street from Ecumen-managed Uptown Maple Commons in North Branch.  But for residents with mobility issues, that’s not close enough.

The food shelf found a solution. Instead of residents coming to the food shelf, the food shelf comes to the residents.

Reporter Mike Bleninger of The Post Review tells the story of how Family Pathways went mobile.
